    Is 'you and your Committee members' fine?

    You have sought and considered a wide range of feedback of Singaporeans with diverse views and expectations. Your final recommendations have benefited from these inputs, as well as the experience and judgement of you and your Committee members.

    Is the boldfaced part correct? Shouldn't it be 'your Committee members' and 'yours'?

    Thanks.

    * Not a teacher

    I think it is correct. You tend to say it is not correct because you learned that it should be, for example, "my sister and I", am I right? I don't think that rule is applicable here.

    It's fine that way, and reads odd the other way.
